I am charging the battery of a brand new purchase. Do I need to let the battery charge fully, ie; the 3.5 hours before I can use it? I keep getting a, "Key LOCKED, system shutting down message on the...

For the initial charging, YES, you need to follow what's on the manual. If it requires you to charge the player for 4 hours as the initial charging, you need to leave it connected to the wall outlet for 4 hours, so that the battery life will become longer.

Though the key is locked, it's still charging. As long as it's connected to the outlet.

Thank you.

The Sansa charges via the USB cable. Fully charged, it should be good for 12-15 hours of playing. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge external devices. If your computer doesn't charge the Sansa, try a different computer. You can also charge the Sansa using other USB charges, such as you'll see for charging cell phones from a wall outlet or a car cigarette lighter.

It won't charge when I hook it up to do so, it used to but lately no matter what computer I use, it doesn't do anything

not sure but doesn't that model have non rechargable batteries in the back that need to be replaced? If they are rechargeable wouldn't you need the ac outlet to charge them?

When i turns on it just says san disk initializing then turns off

It could be that your internal Li-Ion rechargeable battery is no longer holding charge and needs replacing or charging.
Check that your MP3 player is functional by turning it on while being connected to your P/Laptop or USB charger.
Also try reseting your MP3 player by pressing the on/off button for 15+ seconds.
Hope it helps!

Not holding the charge

Do you have a wall adapter for it? Instead of USB you should try connecting directly to a wall outlet. USB is 5 V and sometimes it needs steady and direct current

Sansa MP3 Won't charge or come up on computer screen!?

sometimes if the mp3 is very cold or if it has been completely drained from battery it will do that, first try using a charger that you might have for your car, or something that you can charge it from a wall outlet.

Prombles Recharging Battery

Try upgrading the firmware of the player. If it still discharges quickly it may be the battery contact POP and have the battery replaced.

Sansa MP3 player charges, plays while plugged into wall, but not unplugged.

When you plug it into the wall make sure you turn it off and let it charge all the way before you start using it again. see if that helps
